Walmart put their larger GOSM on sale a couple weeks ago, so I decided to add a smoker to my outdoor collection (gets here Wednesday). I have NO idea what I am doing. I am very thankful to have this plethora of wonderful information available. I do believe my first attempt will be Christmas Eve and I'm going with Spare ribs. Wish me luck! :)

Thanks in advance for the info!!!

What Piney said & it's impossible to screw up ribs if you follow the 3-2-1 method. My first smoke was spare ribs, and I was so nervous that they would be inedible. I followed the 3-2-1 & they came out moist, juicy, with good smoke flavor. I have been hooked on smoking ever since. Good luck!

Welcome.  There are great smoking minds on here.  Ask lots of questions.  I have the larger GOSM that I got from Walmart a year ago.  You'll need to cure it first.  On the GOSM you will see where there's some smoke coming out the sides.  If you want to you can seal it up.  It doesn't bother me.  Put some tin foil in your water pan so it's less messy.  Just like a lot of others I like the 3-2-1.  Good Luck and welcome to food that will change your life.

Just got the text message from Wally World saying it has arrived at the store!!! woohoo!

Thanks for the GOSM pointers. How exactly do you cure it? just run it for a day with some wood?

Still have not found the part of the site that has the E-course
